El Salvador Vs. Guyana, 2014 World Cup Qualifying: Tie Clears Path For Mexico

El Salvador twice took leads, but couldn't hold either one and was forced to settle for a 2-2 tie with Guyana on Friday in 2014 World Cup qualifying. The result leaves El Salvador in third place in CONCACAF's Group B, two points behind second-place Costa Rica. Mexico has all but locked up a spot in the final six-team group and currently sits on nine points through three matches.

El Salvador jumped out a 1-0 lead on a 4th minute goal from Jose Gutierrez off an assist from Rafael Burgos. After Guyana tied up on the first of Trayon Bobb's two goals in the 16th minute, El Salvador jumped out again in the 29th minute on a goal from Osael Romero that was set up by Gutierrez.

Guyana just wouldn't go away, though, and Bobb tied it up with a goal in the 53rd minute with some help from a Gregory Richardson assist. The goal salvaged Guyana's first point of qualifying, leaving them three points behind Costa Rica.
